This past Sunday, our pastor concluded his sermon series entitled "Empowered." We've been reading from the book of Acts about the early church.
In Sunday's message, he talked about living an adventurous life... a brave life.... a life for Christ.
He noted that in today's world, when we travel, we'll pray for safety. But do we ever pray to have an adventure? Do we pray to have God use us in a courageous way to touch others, no matter what we're doing?
I love this idea of living an adventurous life, not just a safe life.
I've seen a saying on the internet recently that says:
"Life isn't meant to be easy, it's meant to be LIVED.
Sometimes happy, other times rough...
But with every up and down, you learn lessons
that make you STRONG."
As long as I'm strong in the Lord and doing what he wants me to do... then how can we go wrong?
My husband and I have always had a philosophy about our marriage: it may not always be easy, but it's worth it.
So, next time you're praying, don't pray to be safe -- pray for an adventure! It will be worth it.
